Guten Abend 🌻
Letzte Woche riet mir einer meiner Professoren zunächst einige meiner Werke an Literatur-Zeitschriften zu senden. Mit etwas Glück hätte ich dort die Chance, meine Gedichte erstmals mit der Öffentlichkeit zu teilen und Verlage auf mich aufmerksam zu machen.📚❤ Dazu zu sagen wäre, dass ich schon einmal ein Manuskript an diverse Verlage sendete und auch einige Vertragsangebote erhielt, jedoch war meine Vorgehensweise sehr undifferenziert und die Konditionen gefielen mir vorne und hinten nicht.🙈 Mittlerweile bin ich der Meinung, dass ein Vertrag mit einem seriöse Verlag natürlich viele Vorteile und auch eine gewisse Ehre mit sich bringt, für mich aber keine Grundvoraussetzung ist, um meine Werke in der Literaturwelt “unterzubringen“. 📝👍
Jedenfalls sendete ich zehn meiner liebsten Gedichte an die Rostocker Literatur-Zeitschrift “Risse“ und bekam bereits ein Hoffnung bereitendes Feedback, dass einige meiner Schriften vielleicht in der Herbst-Ausgabe einen Platz finden könnten, sobald die Redakteure sich besprochen haben.🙌🎉
Diese wirklich lieben Menschen durfte ich letzten Freitag im Übrigen schon kennen lernen auf der “20 Jahre Risse“-Jubiläumsfeier.🌌🍹Es war ein total schöner Abend und ich bin sehr dankbar für all die inspirierenden Menschen, die ich dort treffen durfte. ❤🌻
Genießt die Zeit mit euren Lieben und habt einen schönen Abend! 👑
When you start a book and read late into the night and then wake up early to keep reading. From the publisher, Allen & Unwin: ‘Eating is one of life's greatest pleasures. Food nourishes our bodies, helps us celebrate our successes (from a wedding cake to a post-night out kebab), cheers us up when we're down, introduces us to new cultures and - when we cook and eat together - connects us with the people we love. In Eat Up!, Ruby Tandoh celebrates the fun and pleasure of food, taking a look at everything from gluttons and gourmets in the movies, to the symbolism of food and sex. She will arm you against the fad diets, food crazes and bad science that can make eating guilt-laden and expensive, drawing eating inspiration from influences as diverse as Roald Dahl, Nora Ephron and Gemma from TOWIE. Filled with straight-talking, sympathetic advice on everything from mental health to recipe ideas and shopping tips, this is a book that clears away the fog, to help you fall back in love with food.’ #books#publishing#foodwriting
So, badass loner is my apparent title! Crazy as it sounds I adore alone time and although I embrace socialising too, that's a rare act.
Less is more so to speak. Which fits well with my writer's life, wandering through fields, hills, or empty beaches is so much more my thing. And although I love silly time with my girls - erratic dancing in the kitchen, and yes, I did mean erratic not erotic, and indulgent movie time with buckets of popcorn and loads of cwtches, I equally look forward to my great escape.
But am I badass or simply a happy dreamer, choosing life's simple pleasures from nature to music over modern day madness with its crowded shopping malls and noisy clubs? Whatever your diagnosis you can rest assured I shan't be changing my lifestyle anytime soon.😉 #wellness#shopping#chaos#fitness#lifestyle#writers#blogging#loner#force#motivation#media#publishing

Via @kriserowellnessjunkie - Yup. I am holding a placard (sort of) lol 😁
You know how easy it is to do the talk? But walking the walk is a struggle? #nodsvehemently
We talk about financial freedom but spend like crazy. We talk about promotion at work but do nothing to improve ourselves. We talk about making friends but spend our time doing unfriendly stuff. We talk about ambition but spend hours daydreaming. We talk about living in wellness but indulge in negative lifestyle habits. We talk about good quality family time and spend most of the time on our devices...
We have all been there. Yeah yeah! We all are guilty of something. Trust me...I am not exempt.
It is time we put an END to it and truly take charge of our lives. Because.. NEWSFLASH...no one else will do that for you.
Decide NOW what and how you need to improve on your lifestyle choices...and just DO IT.
Yes its not as easy as it sounds...you will need to work on yourself from your mind.
The strength of your conviction will propel you. And these days, you dont have to go through the process alone!
The difference between a talker and a doer...is the strength of CONVICTION regardless of circumstances!

I've been at @dhhlitagency for five years! Thank you for the lovely flowers.
I'm so proud of all the books that have hit the shelves since @davidhheadley asked me to join him... And I'm very excited about the amazing stories, incredible worlds, friendships, romances, laughs, tears and terrible, terrible crimes that are coming your way soon... The next five years are going to be fantastic!
If you look into the distance,
there's a house upon the hill
Guiding like a lighthouse
to a place where you'll be safe
to feel at grace
'cause we've all made mistakes…
If you've lost your way,
I will leave the light on...
I give you the main character of my latest novel:

Preselling books is a marketing strategy that’s a must. While you wait for your books to be printed, it is ideal to maximize time for marketing and promotion. The presale period is so important, in fact, it should be the centerpiece of your book’s marketing and promotional campaign. So, what is a presale? Technically speaking, your presale period is the expanse of time between the moment you turn your book over to retailers to when it’s actually available to be shipped to readers. Presales can help capture early buzz in the book world! To read more, visit the "Blog" tab on our website! Link in bio. #LucidBooks#Preselling#GetYourBookOutThere
12 tips on how to be a productive writer. Tip #6
Know what you’re good at – It’s important to find the project and approach that will work for you and will let you use your own real and valuable skills to best effect.
Creative people are often multipotentialites—polymaths, or people who get pulled in all sorts of directions. Instead of sitting down to write, most of us would rather hit the beach, go skiing, be on vacation, hang out with friends, or do anything that’s simply enjoyable and easy. Facebook, Twitter, and texting are big distractions for many. You can’t do everything. Are you going to write or not? Are you going to finish that novel? Be selective. Figure out what you can live without, and schedule writing time in its place. What do you get the most distracted by? #ClayBridgesPress#WritingTips#StayMotivated

Starving writer? Sure. But I ain't that desperate.
If someone is ok with writing your "groundbreaking marketing book" on the cheap, that book likely won't be worth the paper it is printed on.
